Fourier Analysis of Tidal Flow Problems

ByS.N. Ghosh

The basic assumptions made in the Fourier analysis of tidal flow problems are:

The tide is simple harmonic.

The coefficients of each term are constant between two consecutive sections of the channel.

At any distance from the mouth of the channel the cross-section is rectangular.

The channel bed is horizontal.

The channel is closed at the upstream end.
